Gloworm Festival is pleased to announce that Cartoon Network, a subsidiary of Warner Bros. Discovery, is joining the festival this year, hosting two areas within the great outdoors zone, inspired by their hit new shows.
Brand new series The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe follows the adventures of Prince Ivandoe, the delusional young buck, and his loyal squire Bert, on a quest for the legendary Golden Feather – said to grant one’s true heart’s desire.
Batwheels is DC’s first-ever animated preschool series, produced by Warner Bros. Animation to feature a CGI-animated version of the Caper Crusader. This Cartoonito series follows the adventures of the Batwheels – a team of crime-fighting super-vehicles – alongside a host of DC Super Heroes, who keep the streets of Gotham City safe.
Richard Walpole, Festival Director, Gloworm Events said: “We’re so excited about this partnership; we know The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe and Batwheels areas are going to be popular destinations for families attending this year’s event. These locations will offer a huge range of fun, themed adventure- and craft-based activities for children (and parents) of all ages to enjoy. We can’t wait to see it all come alive!”
Sarah-Jane Morgan, Senior Marketing, Digital & PR Manager, Cartoon Network UK said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing our new shows to Gloworm Festival this summer. Over the weekend, our new shows will be brought to life, with numerous opportunities for families to immerse themselves in these exciting new worlds.
“We strongly encourage festival goers to visit The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe areas, where they’ll be able to design a sword and shield, then embark on a treasure hunt quest of their own. In the Batwheels area, little ones will be able to play a game of Batwheels Bingo, and there will be opportunities to meet and greet Batman himself!”
Gloworm Festival is an event for families with children aged 0-14, with plenty to keep older teenagers entertained, too. Taking place at Thoresby Park in Nottinghamshire, Gloworm Festival invites grown-ups and their little people to come and play in a warm and creative environment, lose themselves in their imaginations and have fun together as a family – all while enjoying a weekend of family fun and entertainment.
This year’s event takes place between the 11th-13th August, with an incredible line-up already announced, including performances from Mister Maker featuring Rebecca Keatley and the legendary Basil Brush, Andy and the Odd Socks, Livin’ Joy, Ultimate Coldplay Tribute, Stavros Flatley, Mercury Queen Tribute, The Lancashire Hotpots and many more. Not only will there be live shows across two stages, but families will also be able to meet and greet some of their favourite on-screen characters.
